So to all the fellow MSers that replied to my smoking question thank you so much. I want to address something that is kind of freaking me out a lot Gilenya. So my Copaxone ran out a month or two ago and thinking that I was going to given the Gilenya immediately I didn’t order a new batch (mistake number 1). Then I was told to do an eye test which was easy, my mom is an ophthalmologist so it was done and dusted, so I thought. Then I was told I had to do blood tests, I thought nothing of it but I was kind of getting curious about this new medication. My neuro’s secretary gave me a pamphlet to read and of course I read it (mistake number 2). I’ve never been so inundated with scary possible side effects which is why I came running to my safe space (this place of course) to ask questions about smoking etc. Then on top of that last night I realised that I had been wetting the bed whilst sleeping. I don’t know how many times exactly because I’m a deep sleeper but I also know that this weekend I couldn’t hold my bowels either. I was jumping back and forth towards the toilet every minute. On top of that I’ve been told that my blood tests revealed that I don’t have a certain virus that I should have before taking Gilenya and because this is rare they have to look for the injection I can start the Gilenya. Let me be honest folks I’m freaking out. Should I tell my neuro that I may be relapsing (this is like the 5 or 6th time I’ve wet the bed ) or should I just leave it? Am I freaking out for nothing because, no offense, the things I’m reading about Gilenya are kind of freaky. I don’t want to go through another Rebif disaster. Ok, I’m done with my venting. Oops a question after being given Gilenya can a person exercise on the second day? Cheerio
